Internships

During an internship with us, you can volunteer on a project or specialist piece of work. Our placements last for three, six, nine or 12 months.

Our internships

You'll need to commit to volunteering for three to five days a week, for seven and a half to eight hours a day, depending on which project you choose to volunteer for.

As an intern you will receive:

  • Travel expenses to and from your placement - accommodation will be provided if you do residential volunteering.
  • Supervision, coaching and support throughout the duration of the internship.
  • Any appropriate training which is required.
  • Advice and support on writing your CV and application forms, as well as interview skills.
  • Access to our internal vacancy list.
  • A reference on satisfactory completion of the volunteer internship.

"I have learned so much in a short period of time. From getting used to working in an office, organising collections, taking part in collections myself and managing other volunteers. I now have a clearer understanding of community fundraising and what it actually involves. As an intern I have been given help with career skills including CV training and career coaching."

Emily Clark, community fundraising volunteer intern
